JAG | 2700, Dalton Ave, Kapernick Effect, Battle Rap & ...

In this segment of our conversation with #JAG & Patrick we discuss JAG’s single Kapernick Effect – by far, one the most lyrically and visually powerful yet underrated pieces of art of 2018. Remarkably raw and compelling, Kapernick Effect is the type of joint that leaves a timeless message in the history of hip-hop. The kind of art that continues to inspire me and bars that put verbs into my sentences. We also spoke about the process of creating the ...

Legends Never Die

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. How’s everybody doing tonight? Last Saturday was one of the most festive nights in San Diego as people congregated in every boozy establishment to pay their respect to Saint Patrick.

Cookin’ Soul – Better Than the Original

If you haven’t heard of Cookin’ Soul by now, I don’t know what rock you’ve been living under but I have yet to come across a single one of their mixtapes that I did not like. In fact, I even find myself listening to some of their remixes with artists that I usually wouldn’t pay much attention to. Not going to drop any names, but let’s just say, these two Grammy award winning producers and djs, Big Size and Zock, from Valencia, Spain definitely know ...
